Among the highlights are a panel discussion with dentists from Quebec and different regions of France on the theme of forensic dentistry, from ethics to legal expertise. There will also be a lecture giving a concise history of facial reconstruction and face transplants and examining the very latest techniques in this field. The lecture on nutrition for the dental team is designed to help members of the dental team counsel their patients effectively on healthy eating. All these activities will be presented on May 25.
The exhibitors' booths are also worth a visit, with something for everyone in dentistry. More than 250 exhibitors spread out over 110,000 ft² will be displaying a wide range of cutting-edge products, materials, services and solutions.
